A Book of Feelings
In My Heart: A Book of Feelings - Jo Witek,Christine Roussey

This book of feelings is a great way to portray feelings to younger students. It goes through all different kinds of emotions all of us feel at some point and gives a description of how you might feel when you feel that particular emotion. This opens an opportunity to discuss those feelings are how we may handle them in the best way. After introducing this book to the class, the teacher could create a board with several of the emotions on it. Create and name tag and laminate for each child and as the students come in everyday they can choose their name and stick it under the emotion they are feeling that day. This can let the teacher know who may have had a rough start to the morning and those that are 100% that day. Also after reading the book, the teacher can have a template in the writing station, or during a time allotted for writing, that asks the students how their heart feels and why. Have them illustrate their writing when they are finished. This would be great for the beginning of the year while you are getting to know your students or around Valentine's day. Several activities can be done with this book.

A Good Classic Story
Corduroy - Don Freeman

When I see the book, "Corduroy", I get a nostalgic feeling. It brings back memories of my childhood sitting in the elementary classroom listening to this story while each classmate passed around a stuffed Corduroy bear. I had this book in my personal childhood collection and it remains a staple now. Corduroy is a stuffed animal left on a toy store shelf to wonder when someone will come along and take him home. One little girl comes along and wants to take him home, but her mother says no due to his missing button on his overalls. Corduroy was so sad so he sets off into the mall to find himself a new button! To his disappointment, he doesn't find one, but that doesn't stop a very determined little girl. This story is a sweet reminder that everyone has a place and someone to love them no matter who you are. "Corduroy" can be used at the beginning of the year when students are making new friends and might be a little nervous. This story represents how friends can make us feel special and comfort us.

Who Feels Mad, Dear Dragon? by Margaret Hillert, Jack Pullan (Artwork)
Who Feels Mad, Dear Dragon? (Dear Dragon: Beginning-to-Read Book) - Margaret Hillert,Jack Pullan

This is a picture book meant for young children who are starting to learn how to read, or it is simple enough to be read to toddlers. The pictures are bright and vibrant. It is about a little boy who seems to be in a bad mood over every little thing, throwing tantrums, but his parents always respond to him in a calm manner, instead of yelling and punishing. I think this is good because if they just yelled back at him, the child would learn to solve things by yelling, instead of solving things nicely and calmly. By the end, the boy is in a happier mood.

I think this book could be good for children and parents/caregivers.

Disclaimer: I received this from Netgally in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for the chance to read this!

Library Lion and understand feelings and actions
Library Lion - Michelle Knudsen,Kevin Hawkes

I had never heard of this book, until I began visiting my CT's classroom and she taught a unit revolving around this text. If you have never read this book by Michele Knudsen it is one to go on the must read list. This book is about a librarian, Miss Merriweather, who is very particular about her rules for the library. The aide in the library, Mr. McBee is also pretty particular, but he becomes jealous when this new friend the "lion" begins visiting the library daily. Mr. McBee's feelings cause him to take actions he would most likely not normally take. This is an upset to the lion who also has to choose the best actions for his feelings. I won't spoil the story but the book has a great ending and will have students connecting feelings and actions better than before. Library Lion is leveled at 2.8 on the accelerated reader system.
